Week 10 ~ International & New England

Amanda in Scotland showed that you could even be homeless (well, more like in-between flats) and still enjoy local foods. Luckily, she has access to a good farmers market and was able to stock up on provisions.

Karen in Ontario enjoyed some meatloaf this week. About her OLS experience she said, "Overall, it really makes me think about where food comes from and how it's made. I will definitely be continuing with this in many different ways!"

Moonwaves in Ireland enjoyed roast chicken, homegrown peas, and green tomato and lemon chutney before heading off to Germany for an experience she'll never forget with WWOOF.

Wendy in Maine made an eggplant parmigiana type dish that even her non-eggplant loving husband enjoyed. She added, "I think I've gotten closer to finding that balance between eating local and my food budget."

Leslie in Martha's Vineyard
enjoyed grass-fed beef from a local farm, along with veggies from her garden.

Frances in Western Massachusetts started the day with a simple omelette and cantelope melon, and ended with grilled veggie and goat cheese sandwiches.

First, Korinthe in Massachusetts stuffed a runaway zuke, then used my favorite tortilla recipe and became her own tortilleria.

Laurie in Massachusetts also went for two meals this week: fried clams (dug by her husband), and that famous New England delicacy: lobster.

And James and I enjoyed a simple garden frittata along with scarlet runner beans and a glass of homemade (and homegrown) strawberry wine.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated in One Local Summer for these past ten weeks. It's always satisfying to see a tiny seed of an idea grow into something mighty. Your efforts are truly inspirational.

Don't forget that the Eat Local Challenge takes place during the entire month of September this year, and the emphasis is on putting up the harvest so you can enjoy those local foods year-round!
